Preparing today's students for tomorrow's world in a caring learning environment

Fund for Academic Excellence

The Fund for Academic Excellence is a new endowment of the Mid-Prairie Foundation focused on educational innovation throughout the school district. The motto of the endowment is “Learn, Earn, and Return” and was created with a gift from the Mid-Prairie Class of 1966.

The endowment will generate annual income for new and expanded classes and extra-curricular activities for primary, middle, and high school students. A link to the Fund’s brochure is below.


A campaign to raise $300,000 – in order to generate $10,000 in income annually -- is now underway. Alumni, community businesses and organizations, and friends of Mid-Prairie are encouraged to contribute. Donations – large and small – are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated!
